    On-Demand Session

    Overview

    This 1-hour, on-demand session from the ASAM 53rd Annual Conference describes the results of a program implemented to increase access, engagement, and retention of Hispanic/Latinx patients in addiction treatment.

    Many Hispanic/Latinx patients do not receive needed Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment. And, in cases where there is treatement access, there are often lower treatment completion rates for Histpanic/Latinx patients as compared with non-Hispanic white patients. The Colorado Opioid Synergy Larimer and Weld (COSLAW) project, a network of SUD treatment providers and a team of integrated care coordinators, was created to increase patient access to treatment while reducing racial and ethnic health disparities. This session provides an overview of the COSLAW model, lessons learned about improving equity in engagement, strategies for engaging Hispanic/Latinx people with SUD services, and approaches for working with providers to enhance culturally relevant treatment services and approaches.

    The target audience for this Introductory level session includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, other clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and counselors.

    This session addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion, learners will be able to:

    1. Describe the development and implementation of a care coordination program within a diversemulti-systemic network of SUD care.
    2. Understand barriers and facilitators to engaging and retaining Hispanic/Latinx people with SUD in this network.
    3. Understand and share specific strategies for engaging Hispanic/Latinx people with SUD in treatment.
